Percentage of Book Read

I just noticed that you can set the badge on the Marvin icon to show the percentage of the current book read. I know it's not as useful as having it while the book is open, but still it's better than nothing.

BenG,

A click on the top of any page yields a wealth of information ... including the percentage of the book read.

Actually, the % read is displayed at the top every four pages or so. Perhaps an option to have it displayed permanently would be helpful. Anyway, I like the fact that Marvin displays % read, as well as how many pages are left in the chapter (bottom of page).

This. I frequently find myself thinking "in two more pages, I'll know the %". Which is silly but I find I can't reliably pull down the top menu without getting Apple's notifications instead.

The following info "cycles" at the top of each page. For example:

Page 1 will indicate: Title
Page 2 will indicate: Author
Page 3 will indicate: Percent

and then the cycle will repeat:

Page 4 will indicate: Title
Page 5 will indicate: Author
Page 6 will indicate: Percent

Just tap the word (Title, Author, Percent) and the dropdown box shown in my first post will appear.

Don't slide up, down or sideways: simply lightly tap!

Hope this helps ...

Marty

I have this same problem. If anyone has a way around it, I'd love to know.

Just chiming in...I'd like the option to only show percentage at the top of the page rather than cycle between title, author, percentage. I know the title and author of the book I'm reading and they don't change--percentage does. :-)

That said, I love Marvin! It truly makes reading on my iPad a joy.

I'd like to be able to see that in the footer as an option.
